“nice hotel steps from the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Great hotel just steps from the beach. Clean room with everything you need for the stay. Helpful front desk agents. Restaurant is overpriced for the food they serve. Overall it was very good stay. I would come back again.

Stayed September 2013, traveled solo

The rooms were clean, (we were a group of 3 couples), very nice jacuzzi, with a view of the beach, (although we wished the jets were working!), The hotel was more like you were at a spa hotel, not the usual hustle you have at other hotels. Beautiful beach 1 minute away. The service was always friendly and they truly took care of your needs as it you were always getting "tucked" in. We had a large room with a large tv. The only advice I'd request is that perhaps they can be more accodimating as to helping ensure seniors get a room on the 1st floor because the 3rd is just too difficult for them to go up and down....find a way to say "yes" to that one.

I will start by saying being so close to the beach is Acacia's strongest selling point! We enjoyed the look and feel of the building itself. We were happy to be checked in way earlier than expected. Rooms:small, small tv, the lock to the building also opens your room(???), hotel "restaurant" EXPENSIVE for dinner! Jacuzzi is pretty, BUT in a hot island I don't know who wants to be in HOT water. The website refers to it as a "pool"-misleading. The hotel never seemed to have someone around after certain hours(lack of cust service). King size bed: 2 twins pushed together! Only rooms ending w a"1" have fridge/micro-this should be advertised. On the last night we arrived to find another guest appearing agitated and on the lobby sofa. We were startled after 2am with this guest yelling all throughout the building and banging on doors! We had no one on site to help us and the attendant at Wind Chimes did very little to help! It is a scary situation when there is no security or surveillance! The next morning we received no apology or acknowledgement of the situation. Overall, average decent hotel BUT should be priced cheaper and should have guests' safety in mind!

Room Tip: Ask for a room w a double lock!

We stayed here 3 nights in total in 2 different rooms and both were very lovely and spacious. The hotel itself feels like you're in a spa hotel, very relaxing and fresh lighting with refreshing lemonade at the front desk and you're 1 minute away from the beach. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful with lots of information about the island. Parking at the hotel is not free if you are driving around San Juan which I would not recommend. But San Juan is a beautiful place to explore, particularly old San Juan which is a beautiful part to explore with the old fortresses and local shops and cafes, a truly unforgettable experience.

Our experience at Acacia was wonderful. We had a huge, spacious room with a beach view and our front entrance overlooking the large, beautiful ceramic tiled hot pool with water trickling down stone walls.
We were always warmly greeted and Oscar and Fernando were so helpful in accommodating our requests both before we arrived and during our stay. They helped us find the specific places we were searching for and gave great recommendations of where to go and what to do. There are lots of restaurants, shops and casinos within walking distance. We had great meals there at the hotel too.
We highly recommend staying at this hotel.

The staff was the best! I felt like I was staying as a friends beautiful home! Thanks for the warm hospitality Donna & Margarita. The hot-tub was so relaxing and the cafe con leche was perfection with the banana nut pancakes !! I would love to come back and do some more relaxation in the hot-tub and explore the island even more. The Bio Bay was beyond magical ~ Puerto Rico was an Island or warmth and hospitality Thanks Again // B&C

Room Tip: You do not need a fancy HUGE hotel chain to really enjoy such an intimate island - rent a car and go...
